Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner was in Harlem Saturday, where he met up with the Rev. Al Sharpton during a campaign stop.

He addressed the audience at the National Action Network, the civil rights organization headed by Sharpton.

Press reports say the audience was quite receptive to what Weiner had to say about issues like joblessness, education and especially the NYPD’s controversial stop-and-frisk program.

Sharpton was not impressed, saying there was lots of style and not a lot of substance.
